Son of purported white supremacist waives hearing

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The son of a man who once tried to set up a whites-only
nation in America has waived his right to a preliminary hearing on a federal
weapons charge in Arizona.

The defense attorney for 37-year-old Cheyne Kehoe said Tuesday that his client
is not challenging his detention.

Attorney Mik Jordahl says Kehoe maintains he does not agree with his father’s
white-supremacist ideology.

Kehoe was arrested in Prescott following a raid of the ranch near Ash Fork
owned by his father, Kirby Kehoe.

The Kehoe family has been well-known to law enforcement since the 1990s when
authorities say they provided weapons to various white supremacists who
committed robberies across the Midwest.

Cheyne Kehoe previously served 11 years for his role in a shootout with Ohio
police near Cincinnati.
